Oh, I have been waiting for the finale. Please trudge on! ...Rylan our only great grandson is claiming the little Construction quilt I did for the fundraiser! He thinks it's his! It very well may be, as I made more than I promised. ...Any little boy would love this quilt Carolyn. It is very nice, even if you're not too happy working on it and considering all the problems you've had. Please show us the finish, the grand finale!

Caroline, a little guy is not going to see the mismatched lines. He (or she!) will love it no matter how the lines are. The piece of equipment is perfect. The cement bags are perfect. The go sign is perfect. Those are the main focus. Keep going, its going to turn out Great! You are doing a fabulous job. Hugs and Flowers for all

Sorry to hear you are having such a time for this design Caroline. know how frustrating that can be, especially when it is such a large project as this one. I considered making it myself but I already missed the first couple weeks. Guess I'm glad I passed on this one. I wish you the best.Hugs, Susan

Understand your frustration, however know you will be able to get it done.
Know there have been suggestion to pick out a block. How about only picking out the dark line on the middle block and use zigzag stitch to place in correct place instead of doing the whole block over. Will not pray for patience for you just pray for strength.

I agree with the others, it doesn't have to be perfect to make some little boy happy and I have faith that you have the talent to overcome some of these imperfections.

Only place I see is that arrow--does it look like that on the site that sold the design? I will have to go see it if I can. Like one of the ladies said--maybe an inspiration will com to cover the spoilage [crooked arrow] like find a hard hat, construction one or is you have the software where you can trim some 'rocks' and hoop this block again to embroider extra rock to hide the arrow.. Something will come to you--you are an idea person. The designs sewn itself are pretty amazing and no puckers at all. Great looking-don't stop!

I agree Carolyn. There are a lot of problems with this design, one of which is that the stitching is too dense where some of the blocks need to join. You know how many times I have restitched mine. But as I have told you we are our own worst critics. Hang in there. If there is anyone thinking of doing this quilt you might want to reconsider, but I am too far into it to give up now.

That is marvelous. Look at the lines of the machine and the falling rock.
The arrow may need adjustment or some addition when the quilt is done.
"anyone loose a hat to cover the jog?" If it will not line up, look at the finished design for inspiration for a 'hider' piece. A button that looks like a hat. Something will occur to you. THIS is a very hard piece and your too good to let a little tweak stop you.

Trug on! I can see your outer edges are even, so I don't know how you could bring it up at #12 for the arrow line to align. It would be disappointing after all your work. Maybe rip or un-pick just that block and re-sew (I know no one likes to do that but sometimes it's necessary) being careful when you sew the blocks together, to align the arrow line.
I know it really will be nice when completed and you'll enjoy it then too. You go girl!

Keep going my friend! There is really only one block that is really out of alignment...the more blocks you get done, the less it will be noticed...perhaps you can unpick that block and "fudge" it into alignment a bit better...don't get discouraged...the more you do, the better you will get.

Carolyn I think it looks great, a mammoth task for a quilt your not happy with how the designs stitch. Why not send Stitch Delight an email, telling them what is happening may be they have some suggestions to help you. Do you have to have the large numbers on it? Perhaps you could substitute one of the plain ones like the start or 6 / 7 . When I looked at the site and the other blocks, there is a lot that will join designs together, and a lot of blanks It will look stunning when finished if that is what you decide to do. Good luck with such a big project

I think you should carry on it looks great! Get yourself a
Plastic box and put all your fabric in there while you are constructing your quilt take out what you will be working with for the day. Happy stitching.

It looks so good with all the other squares Carolyn. Can you just try to redo the ones that don't line up? Love Chris
